On September 28-29, the BATTEC Technology team participated in the biggest sport karting fiesta of the year on the streets of Kaunas – RIMO Grand Race 2019 karting race. It is one of the most beautiful and exciting karting competitions as Go-karts speeds up to 150km/h in the narrow streets of the city and even slightest mistake can crash you to the track curbs immediately.
The honor of BATTEC Technology team was defended by long-time participants of karting and car racing Gvidas Aukštuolis and Vytautas Ščiuka, team manager – experienced Touring Car Championship participant Eligijus Vasilevskis. Gvidas and Vytautas have been winners of this 4-hour endurance Go-Karting race in the class without gears twice before, but this time achievements exceed all expectations: winning secure 1st place in the class without gears and 3th place in the absolute standings leaving behind most of much quicker KZ2 and DD2 class go-karts. This was achieved by excellent racing strategy, high and steady racing pace and ideal use of changing weather conditions and rivals problem.
Thank you for supporting all the spectators, the beautiful BATTEC girls, and the entire tech team!
